My boyfriend and I ate here in late December during our first trip to the Santa Monica area. After reading great reviews and browsing their menu online, we made the short walk over to the great location near the beach and Third Street Promenade. The high ratings did not disappoint: the food was absolutely outstanding and our waitress could not... More

I was prepared to hate this because of the hype but I don't think I have a single complaint. Our waiter was very lovely and informative. I had a really great elderflower cocktail...ok several. Steak tartare, which I am very critical of, was amazing as was my filet. It was really busy so maybe if you are looking for something... More

It starts with the host! What a perfect place with amazing food. The steaks are amazing and the table side preparation is not to be missed.

California Steak House format. All of our table ordered steak (bone in rib eye) and loved it. I was the contrarian and ordered seared Ahi Tuna. The waiter Aaron stated the kitchen was out of wasabi ....and went next door to a sushi restaurant to get some. The Ahi Tuna was really good ....the Service was superb! Thanks Aaron!!!

While driving down Santa Monica Blvd, spotted BOA Steakhouse & after a quick review check, decided to give it a try. Park 2 doors down & BOA will validate your parking. The interior of this restaurant is beautiful, modern & at night probably has a great buzz. Both inside & outside seating is available. The menu is quite extensive with... More

Service was Best in Class, Atmosphere was fun, food was very good. Still, my (signature) NY steak was a bit on the "hard" side -- instead of melt in your mouth. It was flavorful but only a B, maybe a B+. The piped in music was too loud and we had the waiter turn it down, but as more people... More

We had the blue cheese wedge salad, follow by a couple of steaks, one with the bacon jam, and one with chimichurri with the worlds biggest jacket potatoes ! All the food was fantastic, the waiter was really good, very... More

Service and overall experience nice but a bit pricey. Food just a bit bland for the price. This was my second visit and experience seemed to be same both times

Thank Richard N

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
